He looks a bit bigger than 201. Regardless, once he gets with Moffit, he could easily be in the 225-230 lb range without losing much speed at all. At that size he could be used out of the backfield just as much as out wide.
He's got really good hands, which is something that is extremely valuable on offense, and he seems to have another gear in the open field that could make him a really tough cover for linebackers and big dbs. We could use him a lot like Delany Walker and Vernon Davis were used by the 49ers or maybe Vonta Leach and Dennis Pitta with Baltimore. His size should also make him a nightmare for cornerbacks on the edge as a blocker.
One has to think that at this point, every offensive commitment has to be OK'd by Cam Cameron before it happens, and this guy just seems to be in the mold of those big, physical and versatile athletes that nfl teams are using these days to beat the underneath coverage of all these 3-4 defenses.
Tight ends, H-backs and RBs have become the answer on offense and I expect that the guys we recruit moving forward will reflect that, starting with Mr. Upchurch.
